Workshop Description

If there are such things as anthropological universals, the human propensity to tell stories must surely count among them. As Roland Barthes remarks in one of the foundational texts of structuralist narratology, “there is not, there has never been anywhere, any people without narrative”

The many different areas of inquiry which together constitute the environmental humanities converge in the effort to understand how narratives shape the relationships of human collectives to their biophysical environment. Some of the most influential scholars in the field have described the ecological crises of modernity as a product of narratives that blind humans to their implication in the natural world or instilled a false self-image in them, or they have argued that “better” stories might help restore us to our proper place in the web of life. But how do we distinguish between “good” and “bad” stories if the criteria for assessing them are themselves inherent in the stories we tell about ourselves? 

In this workshop, there are four panels in which presenters examine environmental storytelling in this broadly conceived sense. Please add this event to your calendar and join us online.
